Girls’ Night Out

Nothing like good friends enjoying food and fellowship. 

 

This being summer and hot in Oklahoma, we decided to make it a Salad night.  Each had to bring some kind of salad.  There was a chicken salad, oriental slaw, italian seafood pasta salad, cranberry salad, and more.  they were yummy! And to top it all off, a citrus cake in a perfect setting at our hostess’ house and table.

Glass in the Spring

I can’t believe it’s March already.  Now that it’s warming up some, I need to get the torch going again.  Glass is so cool!  There’s so much you can do with it….

Here’s a few things I’ve come up with.  I’ve updated my website too.  Check it out:  www.cjlampwork.com

New Year’s Eve

My goodness, I can’t believe it’s been since Sept since I’ve posted. 

I’ve had a lot going on these past several months:  taking a glass class and real estate class, working on finances/legal stuff, doing some jewelry shows, work had been crazy/hectic, getting ready for the holidays, and then spending time with family (my favorite). whew!

I’m looking forward to 2010 and what God has in store for me.  Blessings to you all!

Can’t wait for warmer weather so I can fire up my torch and melt some more glass!  Here’s some pics of a few of the latest things I’ve made:

Dotted Topaz Earrings

Moonlight Pendant

Starfish Necklace

Lavender Dichroic Pendant

Royal Milli Bead

Girl’s Night In

Taking a cue from my sister in law – Katie (aka:  http://dishinanddishes.wordpress.com/ ), me and some girlfriends did our own Girls’ Night In.  Check out the menu.  These Oklahoma girls can cook!:

Besides the appetizers and iced tea, we had a green salad with Italian dressing, French bread with herbed dipping oil & vinegar, green beans, spaghetti, and to top it all off….tiramisu and strawberries- Yum!  Our Hostess, Connie, also had a sweet little potted pansy flower for each of us.

Oh, we had happy tummies as well as great fellowship…time to get to know each other better and share what God’s doing on in our lives.

Brick Walls

Everytime I hit a brick wall, God lifts me up and over it.
Psalms 122…I look to the mountains, where does my help come from?

Changes

I’m tweaking and moving stuff around again.  I renamed my website:  www.cjlampwork.com

And renamed my Blog to CJ’s Lampwork & Life Blog….because it isn’t all about Lampwork.  There’s life in there too.  And God needs to be first, or nothing else happens.

I was just blessed this weekend to be a part of a Women’s Conference at our church (Emmaus Baptist) in South Oklahoma City.  What a blessing!  102 women came and shared and sang and just praised God.  Awesome!.
